A Randomized Phase I/II Trial of TheraT® Vectors Expressing HPV16 Specific Antigens in Combination With Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Followed by Transoral Robotic Surgery or Risk/Response Stratified Chemoradiotherapy for Locoregional HPV16+ Oropharyngeal Cancer

Doctors leading this study hope to learn about the safety and effectiveness of combining medications HB-201 and HB-202 (also known as TheraT® vectors) with chemotherapy using carboplatin and paclitaxel in the beginning of the study (induction) and if combining these medications can increase tumor shrinkage after therapy and reduce the amount of radiotherapy and chemotherapy that will later be needed. In addition, the study is looking at ways to reduce side effects overall using robotic surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, or radiotherapy alone. Your participation in this research will last about 2 years. HB-201 and HB-202 are experimental (meaning the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved these drugs), and therefore they can only be given in a research study.
